Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 2/11/2014

    " This wasn't a super easy read, too many details at times for me, but it was a neat portrayal of a strong Christian family. I hope my sons love me like Laddie loves his mother! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly | 2/11/2014

    " Read aloud with the kids. Great classic read with life lessons and values. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Camille | 2/10/2014

    " A good reminder that the best way to learn isn't always going to be sitting at a desk in school. Shouldn't practical/hands-on learning play a larger role? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 1/18/2014

    " This is what is termed in TJed lingo as one of my central books. Every time I read this book I fall more in love with it. All the values of hard work, education, living off the land, a home overflowing with children and music and laughter. This is what I am trying to achieve in my own home. This family is not perfect but they are pretty darn close. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 1/15/2014

    " Great book, makes me want to go back to simpler times... I really enjoyed the relationships the family members had with each other. The best thing about this book is it makes me want to be better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sydney | 1/15/2014

    " This is the kind of book that makes you want to go out into the world, learn a different language, and make a difference. I was inspired! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Treslyn | 12/26/2013

    " Such a sweet story! It's neat to read about an older brother (since i don't have one) who truly is the best brother! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Felicity | 10/14/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 2/11/2012

    " I loved this book though it was a little hard to get into. I skipped over certain poetry parts but later whent back to re-read them. Though i suspected it would end as it did I still really like it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Autumn | 12/14/2011

    " Ah! Another favorite book about large families working together in unity! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The word "delightful" keeps coming to mind. And the insights were wonderful too. No wonder Gene Stratton-Porter is one of my mother's favorite authors! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 11/2/2011

    " A lovely book loosely based on the author's childhood. Best for young adults. I picked it up when visiting Stratton-Porter's home in Indiana. Descriptions of nature and wholesome living abound. Lost a star for the occasional gushiness. "
